The Miitomo campaign for The Legend of Zelda has already managed to reach the 20,000 re-tweets needed for users to obtain the “Link’s new hair wig” and “green Link wig” items. Because of its success, Nintendo has added in a new component of the event. If the worldwide tweets hit 40,000, a “black 8-bit Link tee” will also be provided in Miitomo.

There are a few days left to reach the 40,000 re-tweets. The campaign ends on June 13 at 7:59 AM PT / 10:59 AM ET.

In a bit of a surprise, a new stage featuring Eevee has come to Pokemon Shuffle, both the 3DS and mobile versions. The stage will appear irregularly on Thursdays and only last for that day. Furthermore, the stage can only be played once a day (although additional plays can be bought for Jewels). However, players also have a chance on the stage to earn Skill Booster S and Skill Booster M items.


Nintendo has already shared plenty of information about what it’s plans are for E3 2016 next week. But today, the company provided information about how fans can stay engaged.

First, an eShop sale will be hosted between June 14 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET until 8:59 AM PT / 11:59 AM ET on June 21. Discounts will be available on some of Nintendo’s “most popular games as a special treat for fans.” My Nintendo members will receive “a special bonus if they buy select games included in the sale.”

Nintendo also has plans to tie-in Zelda with Miitomo. If this tweet receives a combined 10,000 retweets worldwide, a “Link’s new hair wig” will be provided to users as a gift. 20,000 re-tweets will net players a “Link wig”. This must be accomplished by June 13 at 7:59 AM PT / 10:59 AM ET. Miitomo will also be getting a Zelda-themed Miitomo Drop stages as well as collaboration items and a My Nintendo reward that can be exchanged for Platinum Points.

You can find today’s full announcement after the break.

Another round of Pokemon GO beta invites have been distributed to those who registered their interest in the United States. If you haven’t received a notice, you’ll need to wait for more invites to be sent out. We’ll let you know if that happens.


I like Pokémon Shuffle’s weekly updates! They’re comfy and easy to play! This week’s update is the same for both the 3DS and mobile versions and adds in a new challenge, letting players catch Kingdra. This battle will run until June 21st.

A few repeat runs have begun as well, featuring Landorus, Uxie, Beedrill, and the Daily Pokémon Challenge (#5). The last of those will change which Pokémon is available daily, starting with Maractus, then moving through Dunsparce, Qwilfish, Durant and Heatmor, before returning to Maractus. All of these challenges except Landorus will run until June 21st. Landorus will run until the 14th, but will also have a higher catch rate each day.

Update: Bumped to the top. We have a few more details about the Pokemon plans for E3.

On Tuesday, Pokemon Sun/Moon will be introduced (June 14). Pokemon GO will be featured on Wednesday (June 15). Guests such as developers will stop by, and there will also be new information and trivia about development that can only be heard here. With Pokemon GO, it will be a developer Q&A.

Also, as a bit of an aside, a local Niconico stream in Japan will be held on Thursday. This will summarize the contents of Pokemon’s presence at E3.

Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 2016 will heavily feature Zelda Wii U later this month. However, as it turns out, that won’t be the only game on the broadcast.

The official Japanese Twitter account for Pokemon confirms that Pokemon Sun/Moon and Pokemon GO will be included in the Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 2016 live stream. We don’t know what exactly will be shown, but this is rather interesting news!
